Here is the Christmas post I talked about earlier this week. My SIL’s mother and step-father live near Pismo Beach CA. They let us all crash their house for a week. Can you imagine? 7 people that includes 3 kids crashing a retired couples house for a week? They are the best, most understanding couple ever.
I did not know them well before the week but, by the end I found them both to be a delight. Very knowledgeable about many things. I enjoyed the time I spent with them.
They (not sure what to call them, I did not ask permission to use their names, therefore they are a they for the purpose of this blog) were great tour guides, taking us all over the area to see different beaches and towns.
A sand dollar with a live addition. Local legend states that you will return if you find an intact sand dollar. The first night on the beach the hubs and I both found one, this was before we heard the legend. Guess we are going back.
Thank you to the SIL, BIL and their family for such a great week. I love the area and can hardly wait to come back.
The only drawback was travel. We drove. That is a long drive from our house, about 17 hours in the car……………………….at least the hubs and I have audible and no little kids . We did break it up into 2 days in the car both ways. The first night we stayed at Riviera hotel and casino in Las Vegas. Good location, clean room, big bed I do recommend this hotel. On the way back we stayed at the Nevada state line at Whiskey Pete’s this hotel does not get even a poor recommendation from us. Horrible room, bad restaurant, lacking customer service and very overpriced.
In all our vacation was wonderful. I want to go back.
